Last weekend I attended the Bristol Bloggers Meet 1.0 hosted by the lovely Chloe from Beauty and the Girl. I met Chloe at the Bath in Fashion events back in March where she talked about wanting to run an event for South West Bloggers. Her hard work paid off and this inspirational young lady hosted a lovely bloggers meet at the Cosy Club in Bristol.

This event was a great platform for meeting local bloggers and because there wasn’t heaps of us, everyone got to sit, chat and listen to each other and a range of brands talk openly and honestly. The blogging community inspires me with each person having an interesting reason and passion for starting their blogs. I met some fabulous ladies at this meet and hope to get together with everyone again soon.
The event started with a chat with Liam at OTR (Off the Record Bristol), an organisation close to Chloe’s heart. OTR support young people in the community and offer services that promote positive mental health and resilience. It is an inspiring charity and they are currently working on a new creative project – Inspiration Works. This project will help young people express their personality and offers a range of workshops, advice and therapies.
Other brands we saw during the event included Weleda and Chelsea Candle.
Weleda showcased their great beauty must have, Skin Food. We were shown a really simple facial to try at home and were treated to a fab goodie bag to sample this natural skincare range.
Chelsea Candle also introduced us to their scrumptious smelling range. I absolutely love candles and these smell incredible. Chelsey who started the brand explained why she loves writing her own rules and was a real inspiration for people looking to start a career or business they truly love.
The event was fantastic and Chloe did such a great job at getting everyone together. We were also treated to an incredible goodie bag (see below) and I can’t wait to try out everything. Thanks so much Chloe, I can’t wait to come along to your future events 🙂
